Ricky is a defiant young city kid who finds himself on the run with his cantankerous foster uncle in the wild New Zealand bush. A national manhunt ensues, and the two are forced to put aside their differences and work together to survive.
Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a wonderful construction of a filmmaker’s imagination running wild and running free. Combining comedy and adventure with a strong emotional core, with elements of the surreal and enough charm to warm even the coldest hearts, the film is a total triumph of storytelling, acting and pure entertainment.
